ACC's Audition Process

Thank you for your interest in singing with Angel City Chorale. Please review the Audition Process below and read the FAQ prior to contacting us about an audition. Singers must be 18 years of age or older to audition.

AUDITION PROCESS:

  • Auditions will be held at St. Andrews Lutheran Church near on National Blvd, east of Barrington Blvd in West Los Angeles. You will be given a call-time; please show up early to check in. The audition itself lasts approximately 15 minutes.
  • The audition will be with Sue and up to four musical advisors and choir members.
  • We will test your vocal range, your ear by having you sing back intervals and short phrases, and your rhythmic ability.
  • To determine your vocal range, you will be asked to sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" up and down a scale.
  • You should come prepared to sing a song you feel best demonstrates your vocal talent. Audition with a song that best suits your voice and demonstrates what you can bring to the ensemble.
  • You may bring sheet music, sing from memory, sing a cappella or bring an instrumental recording including your own speaker. Piano accompaniment will be available.

You will then be asked to do the following:

  • Sight-sing provided music;
  • Sing with other members to demonstrate how your voice blends as well as how well you hold your part against other vocal parts.

Rehearsals are every Thursday from 7:30 - 10:00pm at the Church of Latter Day Saints, 3400 Sawtelle Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90066. There may be additional rehearsals to learn choreography, for chamber ensemble, and one all-day (Saturday) rehearsal.

Dues of $225 are paid per season (subject to change) and there are two seasons per year. Dues cover the costs of running the chorale, including music purchase and reproduction, publicity, CD production, concert production, rehearsal space, and piano accompaniment. In the case of financial hardship, please contact us to discuss possible scholarship opportunities. Payment arrangements (including scholarships) must be made prior to the first night of rehearsals with the business manager.

If you would like to request an audition, please fill out the Singer Information Form.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Audition FAQs

Q: What piece should I audition with? Are you looking for a particular style?
A: The choir has a diverse repertoire; therefore, you can choose any genre from classical to pop. What matters the most is how you sound, so choose a song that best reflects your voice.

Q: How many spaces are you looking to fill?
A: This varies from season to season, and depends on how many singers are returning to the choir each session. Additionally, we need to maintain a balance between voice parts. As we receive more interest than we have space, we will contact you a few weeks before the audition dates if you have been selected to audition.

Q: Is sight-singing mandatory?
A: Sight-singing skills are required for high voices, unless you are a strong soloist. We have limited space for new Sopranos and Altos, as we need to maintain balance between all of the sections, so only those with strong skills will be considered. These requirements can be relaxed for Tenors or Basses.

Q: When will I be notified about my audition results?
A: We let everyone know the results after the final day of auditions.

Q: When do you perform?
A: We have two main concerts per year: one Sunday in late May or early June, and the first Saturday and Sunday in December. We also have other exciting gigs that come up throughout the year and perform as we are called upon.

Q: What is your concert attire? Do you wear robes?
A: The choir wears all black. We do not wear robes or any other uniform.

Q: I haven’t sung in a choir or taken voice lessons before. Will I be good enough to make the choir?
A: Generally, most of our singers have choral or solo experience. We will review your Singer Information Form upon submission to evaluate your experience. If you have any questions about your abilities, please let us know in the form.

Q: Is there an age requirement for joining ACC?
A: All singers must be 18 years of age or older.

Q: Do your singers get paid?
A: We are a non-profit organization; therefore, the singers do not get paid.

Q: Are there any choir fees or dues?
A: Yes, all singers pay dues, which are currently $225 per season (there are two seasons per year). Dues can be subject to change prior to each season. Payment arrangements (including scholarships) must be made with the business manager prior to the first night of rehearsals. There are many logistical responsibilities for both rehearsals and concert production, and we require all members to help with those responsibilities.

Q: When and where do you rehearse?
A: We rehearse on Thursday nights from 7:30pm to 10:00pm at the Church of Latter Day Saints, 3400 Sawtelle Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90066. There may be additional rehearsals to learn choreography, for chamber ensemble, and one all-day (Saturday) rehearsal.

Q: What is your Covid-19 policy?
A: ACC follows COVID-19 protocols per LA County Health Department recommendations. Our Covid Compliance team works to ensure we are conducting our rehearsals as safely as possible. Currently, masks are optional at rehearsals and self-testing for Covid-19 with verification of results before concerts and gigs is required. It is recommended that members be fully vaccinated and boosted to participate in choir activities. All Covid-related rules are subject to change at any time.
